[Solved] Templates should be read-only

I don't really like the way templates are handled.

When I open a template, I want it opened read-only automatically so that I am prompted for a new filename when I save a document based on that template.

If you open a new file from File > New > Templates and Documents, it opens it as an untitled document so you are prompted to give it a new file name when you save it and you can't over write the original template.

You do understand that this is a user-to-user forum? No developers hang out here. We're just users, just like you.

This same question came up the other day.

Does this help at all? http://user.services.openoffice.org/en/forum/viewtopic.php?f=7&t=8794#p41282
